While we still have a few months left to enjoy in 2016, the first half of 2017 promises to bring the weird and wonderful Twin Peaks series back into our lives. The resurrected series, which will appear on Showtime, brings back Kyle MacLachlan as Special Agent Dale Cooper, and of course David Lynch will once again serve as the twisted mind behind the whole operation. But another name long associated with Lynch and Twin Peaks will return as well.
As a new teaser video from Showtime reveals, composer Angelo Badalamenti, who won a Grammy Award for his creation of the original series’ iconic theme song, is back at the ivories for the 2017 revival of Twin Peaks. But of course a simple refresher on the theme itself isn’t enough for the likes of Lynch & Co.; this teaser also features a familiar flight through the forest, complete with disembodied faces floating before your eyes. Oh, Twin Peaks, we’ve missed you so!
Watch the new Twin Peaks teaser below:
TWIN PEAKS features prolific composer Angelo Badalamenti and his Grammy® Award-winning theme music from the original series – one of the most distinctive ever created for television by David Lynch. Badalamenti will return as composer for the new series, which will premiere on SHOWTIME in 2017.
Badalamenti has written some of the most unique film scores of our time. He is widely known for his long-standing collaboration with TWIN PEAKS director David Lynch, which has produced a creative and inspired body of work. In addition to receiving the Grammy Award for the theme music of the original series, the “Soundtrack Album from Twin Peaks” achieved gold status in 25 countries. Badalamenti has also received three Emmy® Award nominations for the original series, as well as Golden Globe® nominations for films The Straight Story and Mulholland Drive.
One of the most groundbreaking and influential television series of all time, the new SHOWTIME series picks up twenty-five years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered. The new TWIN PEAKS is written and produced by series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost and is directed entirely by Lynch.
